Went hiking at Mt. Moosilauke in New Hampshire yesterday, on the way up Gorge Brook trail we walk parallel with a mountain stream. Found some excellent looking fissidens in the stream/waterfalls. Mind you all these fissidens were found at least a foot deep in the stream, which tells me these are submersed all the time if not most. So hopefully these will take off in the "Moss Pharm" (my tank), and if anyone can identify any of them that would be great. I'll keep the thread updated with pics a couple weeks from now to see how they're doing. :D Here's the 3 types

1.) This one reminds me of Java moss, and grows really tight.


2.) This one has large leaflets.


3.) This one is really tiny, looks almost like "Star moss". I really hope this one grows and makes it

I have all 3 tied down with mesh to rocks, some are in the "Moss Pharm" with C02, fertz, high-light. So hopefully they'll take off. #2 could be a liverwort, it definitely had no problem growing submersed. In fact, I couldn't find any of it growing immersed. It was lush and growing in the deep part of the stream (foot plus). I can take some more detailed pics tonight or tomorrow. Out of any of them I think #2 has the greatest chance of thriving based on what I saw in the stream. The only parameter to my knowledge that I can't match is the temperature, that mountain stream was freezing. :eek:
